You know that word "epic", and how we're not allowed to use it? Well this is an exception! An 8-stage Marathon MTB race across South Africa, raced by teams of 2 riders - men's, women's and mixed teams... it's beautiful and tough and a fantastic spectacle - and we can watch it all the way!
Have a look at the website, and definitely check out the stage profiles. There's a stream from the site or you can watch it on livestream, where youcan also find previous videos and clips - and there's a live tracker too.
Here are some highlights from yesterday's prologue:
There are a ton of more ways to follow this race - on the race twitter, on facebook, there should be photo galleries and a LOAD of videos on their youtube. And if you, like me, like women's cycling, this is SO EXCITING! Equal prize money for mixed and women's teams as the men. Here's a video of it
